Review: Bioshock 2 - Gamervision.com

Gamervision says, "Anyone who says BioShock didn't need a sequel is a liar. The fact the first game was such a huge success may have been a surprise, but all it really meant was that a follow-up would do just as well, if not better, at retail. Almost as soon as it was announced, BioShock 2 was unfairly tagged with a stigma that it would never live up to the original. Ken Levine stepping away from the project added fuel to the fanboy fire, and it seemed like the sequel's chances of recreating the magic that was the original BioShock were fading. Even I was afraid this return to Rapture would be end up like the Matrix sequels, where it wouldn't just be a let down, but it would also tarnish the original. That was, of course, before I got my hands on the actual game. After playing through the story, not only was it clear that 2K has a tremendous amount of love and respect for the franchise, but they've also made one hell of a game." (BioShock 2, Culture, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.75/10
